Clarke Swim Center is now taking one-hour reservations for public lap swimming.

All swimmers must have a reservation to enter the facility. At this time we do not have deep water space available. Patrons may use reserved lanes for Lap Swim, Water Exercise, or Water Walking. Space is not available for recreational swim.

Reservations are available one week in advance.

You may use your membership pass to reserve online or pay the drop in fee.

Clarke Lane Reservation Information & FAQ

Cancellations:

  • We will now allow cancellations that are requested 72 hours before your reservation time. No refunds will be issued after this 72 hour period. If you wish to cancel your reservation (72 hours ahead of time) and receive a refund you must email Steven or Stacey. SThomas@walnut-creek.org Gerow@walnut-creek.org. You can not withdraw online.
  • For cancellations requests that do not fall in the refund period: Please call the front desk and alert staff that you will not be able to make your swim time. Staff will contact swimmers on the wait-list and see if I can get an anxious swimmer into the water. (You will not be receiving a refund for cancellation requests made within 72 hours of reservation time)

 Wait-list:

  • We have found that allowing more than three people onto the wait-list is not ideal. Starting July 1st only three people will be taken onto the wait-list. If you are on a wait-list do not just show up to the facility at your wait-listed time. If a spot becomes available you will receive an email or phone call. Most of these will happen 72 hours before your wait-listed time, but may happen as late as moments after the time-slot has started.
  • You can not withdraw from a waitlist on your own. You must call the front desk.
  • To verify any spots you have been wait-listed for, you can look under “Attendance History” in your profile view. It will only show you the number of reservations you are wait-listed for. Currently it will not show which sessions they are, or what position you are on the wait-list. We are working with our software management team to remedy, in the mean time you can call the front desk to verify any wait-list positions.

 Memberships:

  • We are still working with City Hall and our software management team to decipher best practices and policies and procedures for selling 15 punch passes online. We will not be offering monthly passes while the pool operates reservation only.
  • If you have a 15 punch pass that you believe expired during our COVID closure please email Steven or Stacey. SThomas@walnut-creek.org Gerow@walnut-creek.org
  • If you have a monthly pass that expired during COVID closure we are still working on how these passes will be extended. Please hold until more information becomes available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • We are using the 7 day registration system in an effort to ensure that many different swimmers are able to use the facility. Some other agencies that have opened for monthly registrants had the same 100 or so people take most of the spots.
  • With the amount of traffic that our system is experiencing it does have glitches from time to time. We have seen our website tell customers that a spot is available when it is not, it has sent incorrect registration confirmations, and it is having trouble allowing refunds. Our software management company is aware of these issues.
  • We do not allow anyone to share lanes with members of their household. Other agencies had issues with people taking advantage of a household policy and faced a potential shut down due to county occupancy requirements.
  • We are running into an issue with clients getting this error message: 

error

If you are receiving this message it is because another patron has booked the spot while you were checking out.
